Restaurant details
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Queen of Sheeba is located in a tiny, nondescript end unit in a Colfax strip mall. Not much to look at from the outside, but once you go in...what an experience.

The dining room is tiny, but very comfortable. It's open to the kitchen, so you can see the owner preparing the food. Queen of Sheeba is a casual dining restaurant with table service. With a roll of paper towels on each table, it almost falls into the 'fast casual' category.

My mother had never eaten Ethiopian food before, so we shared a Queen's Feast platter, which came with chicken (Doro Wat, beef, lamb, collard greens, lentils, & cabbage/potato all surrounded by injera (the spongy flatbread that you use to pick up your food).

There was also a choice of appetizer; we had the lentil sambussa.

The Queen's Platter includes a beverage. We both ordered the honey wine, which perfectly cuts through the warm spiciness of the seasonings.

We arrived at 5:30pm on a Saturday night. The place was *packed* an hour later.

Call ahead if you have more than 2 in your party.

I can't wait to go back.

All food made from scratch & takes time so be patient! All made very carefully and the chef has been cooking in this kitchen for years! Best plates for people new to Ethiopian food would be the combination plates. Must try the Ethiopian coffee ritual! Won't be disappointed! Roasted to order!

Love this place!!!
I have been coming here nearly weekly since I finally took the dive to try it.
The service can be slow, but keep in mind that it is usually only one or two women running the entire show!
The chicken dish 1A is my favorite and I really enjoy the Anababaro (spicy enjera).
The owner Zodi is probably nicer than your own Grandmother- she's wonderfully generous and very intelligent. And let's not forget extremely hardworking!
Highly, highly recommend.

This place is great! The prices are fair, the owner is a sweet lady and the food is fresh and made with love. It does take a while, but the wait is worth it. I will absolutely be back.

Great place run by a cute old lady. The food is great and the flavors pop out of each item. We ordered the veggie platter for two and it was awesome. Don't miss our this place if you are in Denver and are looking for some great food.
